I remember the day I met you. We were young, only six years old, playing on the swings. I fell and skinned my knee, and you offered your hand to me.

From then on, we were inseparable. Through the hard times and the good times, through tears of joy and tears of sadness, you were always there. From the first crush to the first kiss and the first broken heart, you were there… always there with me.

One day when we were sixteen, we were walking home from school and took a shortcut through an alley. We didn’t know it, but we were being followed. He came up from behind and I felt a gun barrel push against my back. He said if we screamed he would kill us.

I thought he just wanted money, but it was more than that. He pulled us into an abandoned building and started ripping off our clothes. He held our hands down and starting raping us. I couldn’t move, couldn’t scream, couldn’t cry. It was all I could do to keep from falling apart completely. I looked at you and you looked back at me, unable to make a single expression.

When he finished he pointed his gun again and said if we told anyone he would kill us. And then he left.

Shaking, I began to gather my clothes, virginal blood seeping down my thighs. I looked around, but couldn’t find you. I ran up to the broken mirror in the dust ridden room, but you still weren’t there.

You were gone.



That was the day I lost you.
Inspired by an entry in the 1000 Journals Project, instituted by designer Brian Singer.

This story is about a girl with a split personality and the day she lost her other self.

wow, when I first read this I started to figure out that she had a split personality and then the second time I read it, it made a whole lot more sense. Well done, you write very well ^^
